March 22 - May 17
Class Description

Join Bianca Abreu and Erin S. Daily for this six week course in glass and metal working for jewelry using both Urban Glass and Brooklyn Metal Works’ studios. The class begins in the Urban Glass cold shop where we will explore different ways to manipulate pre-cut pieces of glass, or “blanks”, into carved and faceted segments.

At Urban Glass students will learn to use the lathe, flat wheels, sanding belts, and dremels to achieve texture and a variety of finishes including the fabrication of glass doublets. Ultimately all glass will be transformed into small scale pendants in preparation to be joined with metal.

The BKMW section of this course will teach metal fabrication techniques to create settings for the carved glass objects. The focus will be on jewelry applications to create pendants and earrings. Processes will include sheet metal and wire manipulation, sawing, filing, surface embellishments, and finishing in the metal. Both cold connections and high temperature silver soldering will be taught.

Register for this course through Urban Glass.

All students receive a 50% discount on hourly and daily bench rentals throughout the duration of their course.
